Thanks all!! The French case listed above looked great, but I have to agree, I was thinking the same thing about the looks and practicality of the flap.
I got one similar to that for the 8700 from Fortee' (you will never have anything but EXCELLENT communication from them, namely Salo one of the sups, and we here at the forum get 20% off) but it did not have the flap.
That leads to my general problem --Indecisiveness, I suppose, and any opinions would be welcomed.
While that Fortee case I spoke of was wonderful, it hid the beauty of the BB, and this one is even better looking so why hide it. Then I got the Seidioonline skin with the skinned holster. I did like it a lot. I wasn't sure how it made the BB appear, but it was nice, except the black collected dust. I think the white would look much nice, matching the trackball.
and I also had the skins. can anyone remind me of the name of that company in case I get it. It came with a lifelong warranty.. They did a different function, protected it from scratches
I guess I personally need to decide if I want something to help protect it or help keep it attached to me somehow. And along with those, to which degree I will sacrice some of it 's looks
so indecisiveness. But I am grateful for all of your recommendations
